Thermostat sensors

The most common issues with air conditioning units are their thermostat. A fault in your thermostat may often result in subtle or sudden changes in your air conditioners short cycles. This could also affect the output of your cooling system. They often malfunction due to overwork or sometimes overheating.

Thermostats have sensors. These can malfunction when they are out of position. These should be near the evaporative coil, but not touching them. This can be easily remedied by moving it in its proper place. However, few owners know how to properly do this, and it can lead to more problems with a broken coil.

Schedule a Routine Maintenance

In places where air conditioners work throughout the year, scheduled maintenance is necessary. This is due to the heavy usage of the units. Some of the most common air conditioner problems include refrigerant leaks, sensor problems, electric control failure and drainage problems.

If there’s a leak in the refrigerant tubing and pipes, maintenance can find these and immediately replace the refrigerant. Electrical connections can fray or wear away from daily use. Electric controls are also susceptible to damage when using an oversized unit.

Maintaining the system months before summer would help in finding potential parts failures. In addition, maintenance also ensures that parts are cleaned and that there are no obstructions to moving parts.
